Exclusive: Trailer for Cannes World Premiere ‘Darker Than Midnight’

Exclusive: Trailer for Cannes World Premiere 'Darker Than Midnight'

With the Cannes Film Festival beginning next week, we’re getting more and more sneak peeks at the films that will be premiering at the posh French fest. Our latest exclusive trailer teases Sebastiano Riso’s “Darker Than Midnight.” 

From the film’s synopsis: “Davide is fourteen years old. His delicate and effeminate looks do not fit in with his father’s ideas of what a boy should be like. Fleeing the constant conflicts at home, he is drawn to Catania’s biggest public park, Villa Bellini, a world apart that the rest of the city pretends not to see and whose regulars live on the margins of society. Davide takes refuge in the company of hustlers and outcasts who accept him as one of them. But his double life between the expectations of his family and his new friends becomes untenable, and Davide is inexorably pushed into impossible choices that he has to face alone.”

“Darker Than Midnight” will have its world premiere at Cannes during Critics’ Week and will also compete for the Caméra d’Or. Check out the trailer below:
